UPDATE: Female clerk assaulted during Waterloo robbery

Posted: Updated:

Waterloo Police say a clerk at a convenience store was assaulted during a robbery this weekend.

Around 6:30 a.m. Saturday, police were called to B & B East, off of Bishop Avenue, for a reported robbery and assault. Waterloo Police say the man assaulted the female clerk before taking off with some money.

The owner of B &B tells KWWL that the woman has face and head injuries, but has been released from the hospital and will be okay. The owner and other employees say they are shaken by the incident. 

A description of the suspect has not been made available. Waterloo Police believe the man is responsible for several recent robberies in Black Hawk County and because of the active investigation, a lot of details and surveillance photos are not being released just yet.

They are asking people to keep an eye out for a man who is acting suspicious- someone carrying around an unexplained amount of cash.

The group Cedar Valley Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.
